Isiah Thomas Raves About ‘Flawless’ Nikola Jokic


Nikola Jokic has taken the last MVP award for his dominant efforts with the Denver Nuggets, and this year, the reigning MVP is once again making his case for another MVP trophy. 

Jokic has been averages 25.9 points, 13.8 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game on 57.3% shooting this season and is leading the Murat and Porter Jr-less Nuggets to the sixth seed in the Western Conference 

Former NBA star Isiah Thomas now praised the big man for his flawless fundamentals. Unlike many other former stars, Thomas is one of the few exceptions and frequently praises today’s players.


“His fundamentals are flawless. Not only are his fundamentals flawless, his fundamentals with his intellect is flawless. We saw a play at the end of the game where he set the up screen on a high screen and roll and then he rolled behind the guard so he can catch it in the pocket and get a shot. Most big fellas, they set the screen and they roll to the basket. What he was able to do fundamentally is not only roll behind but then he rolled right into the perfect pocket spot. What this guy is doing fundamentally, you gotta watch and you gotta take notice of it.

He’s playing at a superior knowledge base right now than most players he’s playing against.”
